The (Deceased) Dr Laura Horton Thread

Recommended Posts

Originated in 1966 by Floy Dean and later played by Susan Flannery, Susan Oliver, Rosemary Forsyth and finally Jaime Lyn Bauer....until this week.

Something tells me this largely sidelined veteran character ain't coming back from this. So let's recall her loves (Bill, Mickey), her ordeals (betrayals, breakdowns, memory-erasing laser surgery, sleeping with her daughter's lover) and her legacy on this long-running soap.

That pic of Laura, Julie and Maggie hard to believe two of the actresses are still on the show. Its a good thing a shame that Julie/Maggie probably won't be involved in Laura's funeral.

I won't miss this Laura, who sadly is the only one I knew. She didn't seem to have much connection to the leading character she'd been in the past. (Also wasn't Laura older than both Julie and Maggie? She ended up the youngest. Dead though, so there's that.)

I think Laura/Maggie were about the same age.

 

Julie should be younger than both of them although the actress is older in RL.

You could be right, however, one of the characters, Kate maybe, said just this week, something like "this is Salem, where no one stays dead".  And since Gwen is involved in Laura's death, and is connected to Dr. Rolf, it's not out of the realm of possibilities that Laura could get a dose of the "back to life" potion if a writer wanted her back.

Exactly. Death means nothing on this show lol.

...but who would want her back?

She existed solely to swoop in during the epilogue of Abigail's breakdown. She hasn't been part of the show for at least a decade. It doesn't seem like she has many fans.

I think this is it. Ron only brings characters back from the dead he wants to write for. She was used and discarded purely to prop Gwen. If he brought her back...she'd just be swept off-canvas again.

And that’s the only reason she’d be brought back at this point. 

For Gwen. So Gwen can go, “see I didn’t kill her, I’m not a bad person even though I DID do all those other bad things, just not THIS one.  Therefore, b/c of that and my previously mentioned sad story, you should forget about everything else and welcome me w/ open arms! Even though I’ve not shown one bit of remorse or apologized for anything and just demanded that you accept me.”

Even the funeral looks to be all about Gwen. The family isn’t going to get to grieve, it’s going to be Gwen skulking about worried about how everything affects HER.

Which is why I'm glad JJ has been ignored through all of this. 

You should knock on some wood. He’s the only one Gwen hasn’t targeted directly. He can still be brought in for prop duty in a last ditch effort to make her happen. They seem to be going all out. 
 

JJ: “She’s okay. She didn’t do anything to me.”

It could happen.

True but the show doesn't care enough about JJ to go through this either. I mean I thought he would've been brought back to talk about how great Ben is but they fortunately didn't go there.

But someone would have had to have had Rolf's magical serum and administer it within a certain time frame.  With Rolf in prison, I REALLY hope we've seen the last of his potion - unless everyone in Salem now has a vial on hand.  Who would have snuck in and dosed Laura?  It just seems like such a waste to have the characters (and hopefully, at least some of the fans) be sad that a character is gone - some actors really do throw themselves into their grief storylines - only to have the "dead" person magically walk in two weeks later.  The ONLY thing they did right with the Ciara storyline was they had it ambiguous from the get-go if she was actually dead.  We didn't see a body.

Plus Rolf couldn't somehow bring back Stefan, Haley or Adrienne so he doesn't use this on everyone. He won't on Laura. If he does I'll be pleasantly surprised but also think this shouldn't be done to begin with.

Ron is just killing off legacy characters that he cannot write for and Laura Horton deserved better but Ron is just a hack and he is the reason that I no longer watch the show like I used to..

Interview with JLB...

Interestingly, she found a 27 year friendship with a DOOL fan in Cancun.

Seems like a great lady.

A legacy character disposed off by a terrible writer who is definitely set to take his well deserved position as one of the worst writers in this show's history. What makes this even more sickening is that Mike Horton didnt even show up and neither did Jeremy Horton . There was so much more they could have done with her considering her history with Kristen,Vivian ,Jack,Kate,Stefano etc.

How sad is it that they got rid of Laura just to prop up freaking Gwen, the latest long lost child. 

  Bill/Mickey/Laura are regarded as the best love triangle in Days history and they even got mentioned on an episode of Sanford and Son . 

How nonsensical is it that Bill 's death was pretty much no fanfare and Carlivati didnt even make it a big deal and he did the same thing for Laura . 

Honestly ,this man has gots to go.
